Building and Managing a Team
Course detail

We start off by looking at team dynamics and what you need to do as a manager to reduce competition and unhealthy ways of people interacting/relating to each other. We then move on to some conditions and processes that all teams need to be effective. Then we think about individuals’ needs and how these can be met in a team plus what can happen if this is not the case.  We will then cover different personality profiles and how you can work to harness the different strengths and interests of your team.
